Sent a cabbie to Asian to pick up a huge meal incl a bottle of wine for under $100. ;D

Already done :(
After spending 10 days in Paris/the UK and five days in YVR after having kids I thought I had dodged the "I can't travel without my kids bug."
I was wrong
Oh we still travel every month.
Just can't seem to leave the hemisphere...was rooting for ya though.

I actually have a CLE-JFK-ICN-PVG OZ F award for 70K UA booked for us, though the odds of flying on it are about nil unless my Talia decides to wean herself at her first birthday like Rafi did...

Sent a cabbie to Asian to pick up a huge meal incl a bottle of wine for under $100. ;D
Awesome!

Have you had Ba Li and Maichel ice cream yet?
How's the dairy place in Recoleta?

Are you guys actually interested in Asia or you just want to try out the different airline products or try to get I as many places in the world as possible? (Which are fine goals IMO.) It's just that my wife and I have no interest in Asia, and now that we've done Europe, we don't see the desire to leave the US anymore other than maybe trying BOB, MLE and/or NPV, but if all we ever get to is HI that'll be more than fine.

What about Australia? Central America? South America?

And Europe is huge. You could go back and be amazed all over again.

Asia is more interesting than Europe and they don't hate us.

Asia > Europe.

In regards to basically everything.

Honestly? No. These places just don't interest us.
We would do parts of Europe again as stops on the way to Israel.

Other than the Great Wall, we've never heard of anything famous there that we'd want to see. Europe is full of history we know, so we found it really interesting. The no hating Jews thing is nice, though :)

And $320 in YQ. The downside is that you can only book RT, and their call center is terrible. Cancellation policy is terrible as well.

How are you dealing with the call center? Only calling during their day?
What's the cancellation policy?

I just booked it now for the second time, the first time was back then when Dan told me about it. I call during the day, play HUCA and ask for supervisors.

No mileage refund  :-X though day changes are free.
